Now, in his sophomore year of high school, Moss and his fellow classmates find themselves increasingly treated like criminals by the Oakland PD stationed in their school. New rules. Random locker searches. Constant intimidation. Despite their youth, the students decide to organize and push back against the administration. When tensions hit a fever pitch and tragedy strikes, Moss must face a difficult choice: give in to fear and hate or realize that anger can actually be a gift.
